Looking for a new job can be a stressful experience, particularly from a candidates standpoint.

Preparing for interviews, talking to recruiters (other than me of course!) and dealing with rejection… let's just face facts, it is just a pretty exhausting process! But based on feedback from candidates I have personally worked with, the overwhelming issue appears to be with one key area…. Job ads.

So with that in mind I wanted to craft something short and (hopefully) sweet that might just make your job search a little less arduous and to make that happen, I want to take you on a journey….

That journey begins with the organisation themselves, a large scale IT Consultancy and one of my longest-tenured clients. To put it simply, they are an award winning organisation, market leaders in their field with an excellent reputation for providing high-quality and scalable solutions for their customers.

They are known for their use of cutting edge technologies and work closely within financial and banking space in order to provide experiences for customers within their relative sectors. If you use online banking, then will probably have used something that they have worked with! They have offices in four locations across the UK and offer the chance to work on cutting edge projects in both the public and private sector.

The Journey continues with the role, part of a huge recruitment drive planned for late 2018 and early 2019.

Your role will see you working as a Java Developer as part of one of their Agile feature teams, working across all phases of their Software Development Lifecycle to develop bespoke and tailored solutions for a range of customers. You will be involved in the design of the solutions and will be encouraged to suggest or research new and exciting technologies.

In terms of the logistics, this consultancy have 3 bases across the UK. Edinburgh, Newcastle and Bristol. All of which need Java Developers to come in and join their team!

The journey draws to a close with the requirements… which are pretty diverse! So in order to truly get the most out of this role, you'll bring some of the following skills to the table.
  • Java EE Stack - proven commercial experience working with Java (7/8), as well as experience working with Hibernate, Spring Boot and Spring Cloud
  • JavaScript - whilst this is not a 'front end' role, exoerience working with JavaScript frameworks such as React, Angular and/or Node would be a huge bonus. Any experience with wider UI technologies (HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, JQuery) is an added bonus.
  • Microservices & API Development - the majority of your work will be focused around API-driven development and microservices. Experience developing REST APIs is preferred.
  • Development tools - you should ideally have experience working with a variety of development tools including (but not limited to) Docker, Jenkins, Puppet, JIRA, Confluence, Team Foundation Server, SVN, Git and Junit.

Finally, the journey ends with you…. I.e. how you decide to proceed. If you decide you want to proceed to a chat, then give me a shout. You can call me on 0191 338 7505. Alternatively send me an email to d.bennett2@frgconsulting.com .

However, if you feel this role isn't right for you then I wish you the best of luck with the remainder of your search.
